>Everything Edith

>
Bookworm Meets Bookworm has a great idea, and I’m in. This read-along starts on February 2 and goes until March 2. The Age of Innocence is the 1921 Pulitzer fiction winner, so this fits neatly into my reading plans.

Suddenly, I’ve got this longing for Everything Edith. My plan is to warm up for the read-along by reading Wharton’s 1913 novel, The Custom of the Country. During the read-along I’ll be inexplicably pining away for things that I don’t actually want in my real life — a pompadour, a bustle, an evening gown trimmed with lace and feathers and fur accessories.

At least I can comprehend my gnawing within to be in possession of Wharton’s biography by the absolutely brilliant Hermione Lee. Also, who could blame me for my desire to sit here and read? Gorgeous. I love the subtle grouping by color, but that one book leaning irks me a little.
